Rich Frank, MSW, an adult on the autism spectrum, and his mother, Emily Frank, a psychologist, will provide parents, guardians, and caregivers the opportunity to process and express emotions they have about raising a child with a disability, to hear the perspectives of individuals who have disabilities, and to then use insights and perspectives that they gain from this work to engage in productive collaboration with outside agencies that is aligned with their own and their child’s future vision for themselves. We will focus on differentiating between a vision that reflects the parent’s values from the child’s own goal for themselves, and ensuring that collaboration remains focused on the needs of the child. This workshop is open to family members and caregivers of people who have any type of disability.
Equity Intersection is an equity and justice education non-profit. We offer adult education courses on all elements of equity, including disability. We believe education is action. Our courses address race, gender and LGBTQ+ status. A unique feature of Equity Intersection is our focus on ableism and disability justice. We believe that a focus on disability strengthens our understanding of all forms of inequity, and so builds empathy, agency and community.
